Watch out for phone scams!

Original post made by Menlo Park Firefighters on Apr 2, 2014

Watch out for phone scams! Recently a vigilant resident called the fire district after someone called her asking for money on behalf of a firefighters foundation.
Menlo Park Firefighters do not call people and ask for monetary donations. If someone knocks on your door, calls you on the phone or sends you a letter asking for money on behalf of firefighters, it is not us. If you suspect that a solicitor may be trying to defraud you or a loved one, call the police.

If you want to support a legitimate firefighter charity or want to know which charities we support, visit or contact us though or find us on Facebook.

Be safe,
Randy Kelly
Vice President
Menlo Park Firefighters
